The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

Title: Language Learning
Subtitle: A Lifelong Process
Written By: Joseph A Foley
Edited By: Linda Thompson
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=0340762829
Series Title: A Hodder Arnold Publication
Description:

This book provides an introduction to language development that differs
from existing texts in that it traces language and cognitive development
(together with the associated debates) from babyhood, through the school
years of middle childhood and adolescence, into adulthood and the world of
work. Because the world trend is towards learning to speak, read and write
more than one language, this comprehensive book includes descriptions and
discussions of learning more than one language sequentially and simultaneously.
